"A wonderful addition to not only the HIV treatment and management literature but also to psychiatry and primary care as a model of dealing with co-morbid chronic mental and medical illness. Drs. Treisman and Angelino have a refreshing and forward-looking view of psychiatry and the importance of its contribution to the overall care of patients."

"A passionate and thought-provoking book."

"This text is a valuable clinical guide for skillfully diagnosing HIV/AIDS patients with co-occurring psychiatric disorders and conveys a healthy and productive approach to treatment. Whether you are simply seeking more information about the treatment of HIV/AIDS patients or want to enhance the treatment of your current HIV/AIDS patients, this dynamic text offers great benefit and hope."

"This book should be in every physician's library, since it is essential for clinicians to be knowledgable about this contemporary plague that will affect all of us either directly or indirectly... Both a basic primer and a superb reference for all psychiatrists and mental health professionals."

"This is a gem of a book providing meaningful insights into the working of clinicians in a difficult area of general hospital psychiatry as well as serving as a textbook of AIDS psychiatry."

"Upbeat and optimistic, yet realistic and deeply human... This book is well worth reading... Informative, energizing, and inspiring."

"This is an important book, and it should be read by primary care physicians and psychiatrists alike."

"Glenn Treisman is one of the psychiatric leaders in diagnosis and treatment of persons with HIV. He has developed a perspective that is on the one hand somewhat unique to him, but on the other a very important one for healthcare providers especially those working in mental health settings."

"This book is unique and Glenn Treisman can rightly be thought of as the 'father' of AIDS psychiatry. His view on the topic is compelling and he writes with great authority. This book makes a significant contribution to the management of an increasing number of patients who are living not only with HIV, but with mental illness and substance abuse as well."
